Michigan Man Killed in Green Lake County Crash

A 27-year-old man from Ludington, Michigan died in a near head-on crash in Green Lake County Monday morning. Authorities say the crash happened around 7:45 am on County Highway A north of Illinois Avenue, just east of the City of Green Lake. Initial investigation showed the 27-year-old was driving a pickup truck north on County A when he crossed the center line and into the path of a southbound garbage truck being driven by a 44-year-old Beaver Dam man. The 27-year-old was pinned inside the pickup and had to be removed by emergency crews. He was flown by helicopter to a trauma center in the Fox Valley where he died. A passenger in the pickup sustained minor injuries, while the garbage truck driver was not injured. Highway A at the crash site was closed for over seven hours for investigators to work the scene. Names of those involved have not been released.
